Foodie Family Moving to New England

Thank you for such an insiteful post! This has been super helpful to us. My parents live in Belchertown, MA and my sister is in Wilmington, MA. Have you spent much time in Lenox and Great Barrington? There seem to be some good restaurants and high end resorts out there. I know that it's pretty rural but I thought I may check it out while we are there next week since it's not too far from my parents. It's been many years since I have been out that way. There seems to be a focus on farm to restaurant which we love. Thanks again and we'll definitely let you know when we figure things out. We're thinking we are going to visit Portland, ME and around Boston just to see if we could picture ourselves around there.

Foodie Family Moving to New England

We are definitely going to visit Portland next month. Thanks for the the link to the blog, it is fantastic. Are you familiar with the towns around the city? I was wondering if we live outside the city if there are towns with a quaint downtown that has good cafes and (non-chain) coffee shops?

Foodie Family Moving to New England

My husband, myself and our two little girls are moving to New England to be closer to family and we are trying to decide where to move. We currently live in Montana. My husband is a chef so we are looking for a good foodie town that is not too big (boston is too big) and is also outdoorsy, progressive and family-friendly. My family lives in Western Mass and we're open to living up to 3-4 hours away. We have spent the last several years catering for weddings and second home owners and although it's been fun, we are so excited to move to a place with ethnic food, high end restaurants and just lots of options! Thanks so much for taking the time to help us out!
